1.) To initiate movement towards freedom you must… <<<Seven of Cups>>>
There is a choice to be made. Dreams/Visions/Plans. What direction will be pursued? Is there an over abundance of scattered direction, or does one trust how they are moving? There are many cups one can choose from, which one is the correct choice? There is only one cup depicted that stands upright and the rest are upside down. One direction is the higher choice for the querent now, but it is also the highest choice for fulfillment in the longevity of the path. Many choices presenting themselves are illusions and distractions. How will the querent choose the correct path for their unique journey?
We are invited to investigate our life and how we have chosen to walk our path until now. What has been working and what needs to shift in order to be fulfilled in a deep way? Is the vision seen within being expressed in physical form? Or is this vision dancing in ethereal realms not being brought down onto this earthly realm? Now is the time to choose one cup and move fully in that direction. If we take the time to meditate with how we want to move there is a prominent vision that will strike us more than others. This can be an idea that keeps coming back into our life that we cannot ignore. The Seven of Cups speaks to choose wisely and contemplate our unique journey from past to present and consider the most authentic way to navigate and continue moving. As the development of trust grows, movement becomes more clear how to continue forward. This is how we initiate and honor clearer movement towards freedom on our path.
2.) An Obstacle that will grace your path will be… <<Ten of Swords>>
This is a time to check in with attitude. What holds us back from pursuing what we feel attracted to pursue? The root of many doubts and fears can be an underlying blame or victimization for our circumstances. The invitation is to sincerely investigate feelings, thoughts, or belief systems that are empowering feelings of victimization. How are we victims in our own life or how are we blaming others for our situation? When we can clearly look within and see ways in which we have been limiting our own visions and dreams by playing the victim role in our life we can begin to move in a new direction that empowers us and removes deluded thinking. This obstacle of Ten of Swords is connected with the Seven of Cups when it comes to choosing the correct path. If one is stuck in a victimization role, chances are the right choice of what direction to move in will not be chosen. When we are in states of victimhood we are making our daily choices from a space of lack and unclarity feeling as if life is attacking us. When we stand within our being strongly we are able to see and move from a space of love and truth. Once subtleties of victimization are seen it will be painful to feed that type of energy again and will naturally fall away. Once this energy leaves the body/mind/spirit the power that comes into being towards a clear path will reach a new level of fire and momentum.
3.) Moving past that obstacle will require… <<Six of Wands>>
<<Resilience>>To Rise Above>>
A Butterfly flutters above mangled wands entrenched in darkness. What is required to be in the position of lightness and complete transformation is persistent resilience and a movement of love. Life has brought many experiences to each one of us that tests our strength in a multitude of ways. If we have been able to move through the victimization the Ten of Swords brings and honor our path in complete fullness this will open up many doors that were once thought to be closed. The butterfly is the full embodiment of what it is to connect with our essence and fully honoring our unique path. It is light, bright, and free. Not because it hasn’t experienced or touched darkness, but because one has transcended many dark aspects of being to come this far. The darkness is still present within the butterfly, assisting in the recognition of the entirety of being, not only choosing what one prefers to see but being one with the totality of what really is. To move past obstacles that arise on our path we must embody an unwavering resilience that stands firm in the truth of our being. As we rest in this space we are able to move through challenges with grace.
4.) Freedom may look like… <<Daughter of Wands>>
Freedom may look like a wild fire at first glance, but as the path becomes more mature and clear through experience this fire will burn softer and longer with a quieter force. The Daughter of Wands is an exciting energy filled with fire and inspiration. This energy burns hot and fizzles out if not tended to. This energy and excitement must be broken down to everyday practical movements to move this excited fire energy into an actual forward moving direction. Daughter of Swords is a warning of overly high energy that can lose a great deal of direction if not quietly harnessed to allow true growth to occur. The snake is wrapped around the flowering wand in an infinity shape. She is reminding us to harness our energy, bring it down a few notches and cultivate a nurturing space for what we wish to bring into being. Harnessing our fire and creative energy and learning to direct it wisely.
..::..T h r e e o f W a n d s..::..
The seeds one has been planting with love and energy are creating a strong foundation in ones life, reflecting a polished mirror of inner to outer manifestation. The loving investment of energy into work, relationships, creative visions, and interests have been cultivated and can now be expanded upon. The path is clear and there is unwavering conviction that the way is being paved in a divine harmony. The daily work must continue for the blossoms to fully bloom. The love underlying the movement is purely spirit that is taking on its own life. Three of Wands is a reflection to continue the way of the heart, to trust in fullness of what is present and what is to come. Moving in this way allows pure vision to manifest in magickal ways – even more beautiful than the original vision. High momentum is whirling with grounded energy to stabilize this force. All loving and true energy investment is not wasted. A solid foundation is being created that is not one of solely material foundations. This foundation is built from spirit combining with earth energy – to bring into being what ignites the soul, a bridge of spirit and matter.
. . .
As each unique being honors and acts upon the natural flowing guidance, flowering within expands us to a higher dimension as the old world collapses. We are creators and naturally each have visions and dreams to bring into being, we become weak when we hide away from our natural movement. As energetic momentum in physical action has been lovingly invested in our aspirations, we give shape to new worlds that only we individually can intimately know. As we gain strength in our genuine power and intuitive connectedness we honor each step of our creations. In this way we are not swayed by underdeveloped opinions or misguided energy. Listen to what vision arises within and allow this insight from your own internal navigation to lead the way. Move from your unshakeable depth and draw resources from this infinite well. Continue to embody strength and gentleness if unkind energies arise as doubt. When we have a clear connection inside we will know the way to move, even if that means into the unknown. Always follow the deeper movement of understanding.
. . .
Energies of doubt, fear, or hesitation about what wishes to be pursued are allowed to be present. Everything is a choice, allowed or not. To choose to be inside the essence of oneself will allow these other energies to fall away. Sometimes this requires time and in other instances energies can be fluidly dropped. As your attention is open to seeing what is honest within, these heavier energies will be exposed and released within the cosmic rhythms. The energy in Three of Wands is to trust your way whether fear is present or not and proceed with confidence and daily action. As we give attention to the vibration of being, allow the potency of the inner space to obliterate the small insignificant specks of smallness which limit you. A natural checking in becomes subtly refined and unraveling our highest potentiality. Moving in honest direction of your spirit.
. . .
Many subtleties within are seen that were once overlooked. The depth that has and is being discovered is pouring out to infinite aspects of life. As inner fullness is pouring out into physical reality and creating magick where deserted lands once were.
As inner clarity of spirit is revealed, actions become natural, flowing like a river.
…::..Eight of Cups..::…
/Moving Forward / Drastic Change / Onward & Upward/
~Shattered white cups at the foot of a dark mountain. An unknown horizon beyond~
Eight of Cups is about a great change that is known or felt. Either something must shift, or one has already decided to take the leap. Internally, there is already the presence of a gut wrenching knowing that one must move toward a new direction in one or various aspects of life. As we travel the inner and outer realms of life we begin to take with us what is fulfilling and rich in our lives and we also pick up what hinders the organic and vibrant flow of life. As we continue to journey we learn, grow, observe, act, and move in ways which that at times in vigor our lives and also deplete our lives. This is how we learn to navigate more wisely, as we open our eyes to what resides in the deepest core of our being we honor what wishes to be valued, cherished, and nourished. As we become acutely attuned with this core depth of our being we begin to invite that which serves our highest good and detect much more efficiently that which does not. The Eight of Cups is a drastic change that makes space and movement toward that which is in higher alignment with our individual and collective path. Becoming raw, open, vulnerable, and honest, moving forward to that which nurtures, supports, and holds our sacred path with loving arms.
For something that needs to be changed it must be acknowledged sincerely. As this takes place, internal space becomes open and light for new movement to be made internally and externally. Eight of Cups can be painfully beautiful. As we see what no longer serves we make the choice of rising into new territory celebrating a new way of living. This is a time to reassess and evaluate what we hold dear and what we do not. What is it that we cling to which is weighing us down and what moves are we making to step forward? Eight of Cups looks dark, but as this darkness is acknowledged a breath of fresh air is inhaled and new perspectives arise. This leads to more magic, possibilities, and a great abandoning of poisons and toxins within our being. As we face these dark layers from denied territories within we expose the immense beauty that is birthing itself into existence. We are pregnant with new life, and a fresh way of being. Death and Birth are tied in as one. We see this as we dive deeply and uncover what was/is dormant…we awaken the sleeping beast.
One must ask, has what been seen been fully acknowledged? Or, is there still an aversion to this honesty? An automatic response will come within. Deep in our womb, we know. When we tune in, pay attention, the answers show themselves. Whether on the verge of raising a hand and acknowledging the hidden dragon, or, on the other side where one has already acknowledged what is….Now is the time to feel into this. Eight of Cups is drastic change. It’s coming, it is here, and the next trajectory is lighter and brighter once deep recognition takes place. It can be extremely scary to walk into unknown territory and extremely exciting. The next chapter of the unknown is a step in the right direction. It is the rainbow after the storm. One is being pulled into right alignment with their soul purpose. It is a time when profound realizations of ones unique direction and path are leading the way and what must be let go in order to create new space and new life. All stagnant, dormant, and all that is unchecked will arise now. Dive deeply, be honest, and watch the magic that arises from this rawness of spirit.
/ WE ARE WILD / WE ARE FREE /
..::.. Five of Wands ..::..
Scattered Energy. Conflict. Confusion. These wands seem to be on entirely different trajectories. Something is being called to the forefront to be looked at more intimately. What is it in this moment that feels out of alignment internally? Energetically there are thoughts of a situation that are in question. Which ways are best to move and what is the highest way to realign with ones unique, natural vibration? Lets bring any outer situation or experience back to internal experience. We begin here, in presence, as this is where all this wildness springs from. Wands are a fire energy of movement, passion, ideas, inspiration, and the creator suit. The Five of Wands seems to be floating out of sync with one another, no color to hint at an energy burning brightly…..somethings gotta shift!
As we begin with ourselves and our internal climate first, where do we go from here? What feels off and what doesn’t feel like it is flowing with other aspects of our life? Once that is seen, feel into it. Is it something new or is it something that has been felt for some time now? Whatever is arising now, it is time to use the fire of the wands to create in the way that feels most in resonance with ones path. This may take some time, sit with what is arising, and to truly feel into ones being. This is a wise time to not distract oneself with other things as that will only delay what wishes to be seen. There could be multiple and valid stories to each of your thoughts or feelings about what is happening. On a deeper level, what rings true for you? Whatever it is you do to gain clarity, do that. There is no road map to create space within your being. Meditation and body movement are incredible tools that can help uncover this natural silent space. However, we are all very unique and tap into our ever present space in different ways. As you are with yourself and inquire, allow yourself to navigate all perspectives and feelings which arise. Explore openly and honestly. At times the different perspectives can also cause even more confusion, especially if there are multiple solid perspectives that all feel as though they can be true. Sitting in the depths of our own being in silence can bring up the most clear answer, we know it when it shows itself. Patience and kindness towards oneself will allow any anxiety and fear to dissipate while looking sincerely within. Our connection to our intuition and our honesty with ourself is important for us to navigate. Allow the power of presence to be felt. Words do not always come with realizations of what to do, but an answer will be felt when given space to arise.
Five of Wands is ready to be redirected in action again. Wands are meant to create magic. When wands energy is not balanced and used to full capacity it can feel flighty and directionless. Wands are designed to create, inspire, and create expansive energy within our lives. They are bursting with creation when aligned with the heart. We are constantly carving out our path, each day within our being and the actions that spring forth from our internal self. It ain’t such a bad idea to reflect and contemplate the way in which things are moving. Is one deeply loving the direction of the course, or is it time to make adjustments? We have this incredible freedom to move in the direction of creating and exploring an incredible life. Now is the time to remove that which is not in alignment to move on to a clear trajectory instead of a scattered one. The more tuned into ourselves we are and the more we tap into our depths we will be more fluid with addressing what is out of alignment and what is not. Sometimes…..it takes awhile and that is okay. Eventually we get insight when we are willing to look, when we are honest, and the timing is right. Five of Wands reminds us to dive in, tune in, and don’t get up until you know whats up! Delay will only prolong what is wishing to be seen.
Five of Cups is striking. Immediately gives a feeling of sadness and despair. The color of the horse is white, which symbolizes a purity and innocence energy present. The head hangs low in the darkness, absorbed in energy that is pained, doubtful, and grim. Above the horses head is light space with five cups hovering above the creatures head. The cups are on a higher plane than the horse, above him, and he pays no attention to their presence. Instead the energy of the card is paying most of the attention with the darker aspects of his experience while completely missing there are always both energies of shadow and light present. If we are alive, we are never fully engrossed in only darkness, but with energy focusing solely in that direction it can seem that is…all encompassing. When looked at more closely, a tiny detail on the horse is seen is a slight smile, barely noticeable. An energy is felt that perhaps on some level, in a subtle way, this dark energy is enjoyed in some way and is what is adding fuel to this low vibration. While there are five cups floating above, perhaps the energy here is suggesting there is a choice of not wanting to see.
To see a free spirited and strong creature slumped over in darkness can suggest that something in the querents life is not aligning with their soul purpose, that which makes them feel alive. vibrant and in harmony with life. It is possible the querent will intuitively know what the card is pointing to as it is drawn. The initial feeling of what is seen is worth the investigation as it can be a trigger that is connected to something deeper and ignites a initial spark inside. If there is a time where perhaps we are not expressing the passions that are intertwined deeply with our heart we can begin to lose vibrancy. Our unique soul expressions are a necessary part of our health and happiness and many times are linked with the main source of our life force/prana. If one is prioritizing only practical matters before that which makes their soul move, this sadness or despair can creep in and replace creative vision and expression. Five of Cups invites balance to what is practical in nature, but to never forget what excites and nourishes oneself deeply. Although this present time can have a shade of powerlessness on various levels, we always have the power of attention. Where is one focusing attention? What is the quality of life that this attention focused is highlighting?
Five of Cups represents a loss or pain and on top of that shame and guilt that is felt. This is what keeps the energy in the darkness. The pain felt is not coming from the experience itself, but from the mental and emotional activity added on top of the turmoil already being experience. This stretches out the healing process for weeks, months, even years. Some beings may go through life with this extra layer of shame or guilt added on top of an experience that is long gone. Because this mental activity is held on to it makes the healing much more painful and drawn out. There is a victimization going on in this card. Clinging to the past when there is so much to be immensely grateful for now. There are times when we have to shake these ghosts that seem to be sucking our sweet nectar. There is a time to feel it all, but there is also a time to check in and make sure one is not dwelling in the darkness for too long. It arises for us to learn and grow, but it isn’t meant for us to set up camp and remain in the shadows. Energy is always flowing, the waters always moving, and there is always the opportunity to navigate in a new way. Five of Cups can represent something like an investment in unhealthy emotions or ways of thinking, a death in the family, something that is weighing on you in the slightest or heaviest way that is draining your energy. Ask yourself, maybe through journaling or whenever you feel, has there been to deep of an investment to that which is no longer serving you? Have you been grieving, sitting in sadness, or wallowing for too long? It is time to get fresh energy flowing. Whatever has happened or whatever state you find yourself in, it can be learned from and used wisely as another tool through your travels.
All that pains us and pushes us is also a catalyst for creation. Some of the most beautiful artists in the world experienced tremendous pain in life and transmuted this energy to beauty for themselves and others. We are not only one label or shape that we can package nicely and say “This is me” Jesus….that would be fucking boring. If one can package themselves in any shade of the broad spectrum, this will be a sad day. We are ALL vast and uniquely orchestrated beings. When we identify heavy with one aspect of self we can tend to ignore or even have a distaste for the other. Sometimes this can block or cut off valuable aspects of or being. Five of Cups is an opportunity to embrace what may feel harsh in the beginning, but a reminder to not dwell there and know that all can be transmuted into creative energy. Many times when we feel we are in a slump or even stuck in any state of despair we think well shit…..THIS IS IT!!!! At that specific moment is when the most brilliant creation is waiting be birthed forth. As death comes of an aspect of being we are ready for the creative force to move us. This is part of the invitation here. Look at what is being tuned into and do not wallow. Feel, but do not stay in any lowly state too long. Allow your being to mature, learn and move on.
We are vast, creative forces with many options to explore. Allow the natural movement flow.
Son of Pentacles is gazing down, his attention is a one pointed focus in a specific direction. Where his attention is present there is light, the rest of the card is dark. He is reminding us where we place our attention is where we will expand the greatest. The present focus is on his work/vision where he is putting every ounce of his sweet attention. Above him is the crescent moon and pentacle. He is led by his intuition which is grounded in the earthly realm. Through experience his intuition has become refined and trustworthy. At this time his attention is in the details of his work. Son of Pentacles is grounded in his being and he moves from the unwavering space within him which does not lead him astray. He knows his vision can only be fully realized if he puts all of his attention towards his vision every day. The Son of Pentacles is a maturing energy which takes the exciting energy of an initial vision and puts it into day to day action in order for the vision to fully embody in physical form.
Day to day action will be successful as the energy is present as is the desire to bring forth vision to reality. The Son of Pentacles is chosen when the energy is present to bring forth tangible results and not one that simply holds ideas or concepts that are fleeting. This is the time to allow oneself to be fully involved in creation and allow what wishes to flow through to seduce ones full attention. The seeds have already been planted, watered, and now they are ready to bloom under your feet. Every action taken now will not be gone to waste. Moving from your being in the direction that feels in full alignment will feel clear, light, and open. Because this vision is moving from this space it is bound to do well with all action and energy toward it. Moving with the wholeness of ones being as well as the commitment and action combined will bring this vision manifest. The Son of Pentacles does not seem to be going fast, but slowly and attentively. The details are much more important than speed. Allow authentic naturalness to be priority before anything else. With this way of moving there will be a realness in the vision that will speak for you and be shared with those who align with what is shared. Time will vanish when one is immersed in this natural space of creation.
Son of Pentacles is building a foundation. The capacity may not be understood to its fullness, but it is being nurtured, cultivated, and created each step of the way. Son of Pentacles is moved by the moon, his intuition, and honors this space within him and in others. Because he moves in this way the foundation he is creating cannot fail because the foundation has been built from within and not from the material realm. His strength has been gained from the peace within his being which is now beginning to create a world and vision which can be shared with more than just himself. He has a solid way about him that does not bend or break easily. Through experiencing what he has this far along his journey he has insight and wisdom to share that will be useful to others. This experience and insight will come through on the project he is currently focused on. All dots are connecting and he does not doubt which way he is moving, he simply knows that he must take consistent action each day for him to share his experience with others who may benefit.
Fire energy is radiating from one single wand. Growing off the wand are three smaller branches flowering off the main branch. The wand represents you, it is you who is flowering. The three blooms represent Mind~Body~Spirit. The ONE wand is representing the connection of all three. The internal power you are feeling is naturally blooming and merging these three aspects of you. Growth is happening on all levels, refining subtleties within you. Where you decide to point your wand your focus and attention is where you will see the most blooming. Ace of Wands is the reflection of great internal fire moving through you that where directed will expand as much as your attention presently focuses. The nature of this card is mirroring this power that is of high momentum as choice and action merge. Choose wisely at this time what you are fueling, this energy can be wasted just as much as it can be honed in and used productively. Right now it is strong and potent. This felt power and the action are one energy. If only felt but not merged with action this fire will burn out and dim. Like any season of life some energies are here for specific times and when we are in tune with our being we can ride that energy in appropriate timing.
The fire that blooms within has lived experiences that create a depth that adds to all that we do. Whether we are interacting with someone we just met, starting a business, sharing space with family and friends, embarking on a new adventure, or working towards a vision that is seasoned and morphing. The experiences each one of us has lived thus far have helped us expand and grow in ways we did not plan for and in ways we could never have imagined. Life is spontaneous in its natural state, organic and fresh. When we contemplate our life and how many plans have morphed and shift we can see how we truly never know how details will work out or how discoveries will emerge and show us another part of ourselves that was ready to birth itself. Can we trust this natural spontaneity of life that is unfolding, do we even have to ask that question or is it clear? Ace of Wands is inviting one to say yes, and to place attention on what direction feels true. Being honest and transparent one cannot fail. Your primal energy, your intuition, is not hinting or giving you cute little signs that you have to wonder about. The inner voice is loud and clear. If you don’t move this energy it will die, it is asking for movement. There is One wand here, only one. The invitation is to focus this energy on that creative idea, business plan, whatever it is you are already working on or are ready to launch into. Focusing energy daily on this vision or idea that is present will feed the fire and extend its life. If you are feeding the fire you will be nourishing and balancing without trying, it has the opportunity to become effortless. All the aspects of your being that are flowering are pushing through your limitations to create the vision you can already feel. Allow. Allow. And keep allowing. Intuitively, you do not need to think that much about it, you already can feel how to move. Simply act and put energy forth daily.
When Ace of Wands appears it is a great time to kick any habits that may be lingering that you have been feeling or trying to change. Smoking, eating habits, exercise, anything that you feel is no longer serving you and draining your energy. This clearing will only add fuel to the fire and create clean and healthy space to encourage your blooming. It’s time to think if you don’t want to be doing this habit in 10 or 20 years do not keep feeding it now. Or, if you want to see something new integrated within your life now is the time to invite it in. Habits you abandon or invite in will stick at this time and become as natural as brushing your teeth, unless you suck at that…then bad example. Ace of Wands invites spring cleaning in all aspects you feel can use change. Cleaning the space which you live, Getting rid of what you don’t use and having a fresh space for your work, home, creative spaces. All of this will assist in putting your attention where it is intuitively wanting to move. Letting go of old dusty stuff that doesn’t matter, internally and externally. Enjoy the alive, clean, forward moving energy present. One can completely invest in that which you are organically allured by. Trust this natural cleaning energy and the fire that is present to move you. It is not blind faith, your intuition is guiding you in the right direction.
Trust in yourself is growing and maturing.
//Three of Cups is a time for play, enjoyment, and absolute celebration. Three of Cups embodies dance, celebration, eating yummy food, and gathering with those we love. Three of Cups comes at a time where rest is needed before reengaging focus and direction towards a project, work, creation, school, travel, or a completely new direction. A solid foundation has formed and intuition and actions have united in positive direction. Energy is in alignment with being, merging the heavens and earth. The invitation is to melt into enjoyment and spontaneous fun. When we allow periods of rest and play this will feed the fresh energy needed to continue the work, moving solidly forward. If feelings of doubt aries that vision may be lost because of taking a break ~ see all the energy already invested and nourished thus far! The foundation is already there and the momentum is already moving in the correct direction. Think of taking a temporary rest or break from a goal as an energy investment for the long term future visions and goals. It will add more power to the work and empower ones energy//
//Three of Cups invites us to look at what kind of people we are surrounded by. Are we inspired and led in a positive direction by those around us? Are we supported through highs and lows by the people we choose to befriend? Do they inspire healthy habits or negative ones? Do they support dreams and aspirations, or put them down? Three of Cups says investigate and look at the friends around us. Are we comfortable with friends simply because they have been in our life for years? Are we scared to make new connections that may stretch comfort of what is known? Every detail of our life is constantly shapeshifting, molding, and forming our existence. When we have standards of the quality of people we choose to surround ourself with we are aligning with the highest within ourself. How do our friends reflect aspects of ourself that we want to change and how do they reflect aspects of ourself that empower strengths? Our friends are mirroring many layers of our own being. The attraction magnetizes people together for discovery, growth, and expansion. If a relationship is not pushing any boundaries, the inquiry here is to ask what is being overlooked that is causing this relationship to stay stagnant? Are there some relationships that can be let go of in order for new energies to move in? Or do conversations need to be opened for clear communication to move through? A solid and true friend will be willing to open the doors to expand on what is asking for clarity. Three of Cups asks us to align with those who are healthy for us, who push us in a positive direction, who support dreams and aspirations, who offer support through light and dark phases of life, and who honors what one deeply values in life because it is the same within them. Three of Cups invites us to let go of those who no longer align and allow new forces to come in that raise us in a higher ways//
//There is a giving and receiving of energy that is fulfilling and authentic with Three of Cups. Aspects of being are flowing in unexpected ways. Through communication and everyday movements there is a maturing unfolding within and opening in new ways that allow many aspects of who one is to be more expressive than ever before. This is assisting in relating with many different people from all walks of life. Opportunities will be presenting themselves at this time, doors will be opening and interactions will be on the rise. One is either making their own way right now, or, there will be people reaching out in your line of work to collaborate with you. Intuition is wide awake now and can be trusted to continue your work alone or with others at this time. You are confident to know if it is right for you or not. Three of Cups says enjoy this period of expansion and play, allowing it to move you in fresh, spontaneous, and magical ways//
Justice. What is being served? What have you been serving to yourself and the world? We are transparent creatures. If we hide from ourselves we close the doors of Justice and Truth. Sometimes we find what we hide can really not remain hidden for long. The rivers of life are always flowing and they do not leave anything within the being untouched. Every dark and light corner will be seen. The Justice Card is looking right at you. A white and black cat with tails intertwined peer into you, seeing what perhaps is time to take a closer look at. The cats reflect the wholeness of you. The light and the dark aspects of life, and of you. If you couldn’t tell already….this card screams pay attention! Something is coming up now that demands all of you. Not just part of you, not just a taste….its all or nothing! This is an exciting time, or at least it has the possibility of being looked at in this light. When Justice is served it means honesty, transparency, and vulnerability with yourself and others. These shifts of honesty, vulnerability, and transparency will shift ones life dramatically. When things feel uncomfortable and unknown the invitation is to be honest with ourselves in the present moment, although we do not always know the answer or solution to a situation. Sometimes we will not know and we can relax in this unknown space as much as we can relax when an answer arises. We cannot rely only on answers in order to be at peace with what is, there will be periods in life when everything is up in the air with no answer to cling to. The opportunity to be honest in the present moment expands infinitely. Lies can be seen in the eyes. One cannot hide. The more honesty becomes our natural way, not something we try and do, we become more aware of subtle workings of dishonesty within ourselves and others. Our discernment becomes refined. We may not always know how the next best way to move is, but we always have the opportunity to be straight with where we are within our being.
What is arising now? What situation is begging to be looked at more closely? Attention is everything. Justice asks for looking at all angles and perspectives a situation. Looking from your own perspective and how you truly feel, looking at others perspective and what they are experiencing. The point is not to see in black and white, in the way of you are right and another is wrong. The word of the wise cats on the card is to encompass all light and dark. This is seeing the entirety of the picture and not only one narrow minded point of view. Your ways of being right will be limiting to you now, this card serves the highest good of all, not only your bubble of a universe. Think vast. The call to action is to call in compassion, gentleness, and your own honesty. You cannot dictate how others involved will be and you cannot always know if those involved will be honest. But you can be real with yourself and all involved for your own peace of mind. The sword pointing downward between the cats is symbolic of action, however, because it is not upright it does not necessarily mean victory in the way that you will get what you want from the situation. However, you will get what is appropriate for growth and expansion. Sometimes hard lessons are learned here, but humbling and undeniably perfect as one sees why all must transpire in the way things unfold.
The Diamond in the center of the card can be a symbol of many ideas and concepts like anything else. What is felt strongly is the representation of a yoni shaped like a diamond. The birth of being comes from this diamond. As one is alive in this wild, magical circus, can we see how the life which springs from your being is creating worlds upon worlds? The inquiry is to investigate the worlds which one is creating? Pay attention to what is arising within your experience. What are you creating? What does your inner being feel like? Are you hiding or making up stories, actively believing for them to be true? Are you believing deluded stories that are distant from the essence of your being? Justice invites one to return home. Whatever situation, whatever experience, whatever it is that is asking you to take a look more deeply. Time is to open, acknowledge, see, inquire, investigate, with honesty. This will allow you to look at what is instead trying to play with escapism in any way shape or form. Notice if heaviness within your being is present, this heaviness is most often than not associated with a false story being told within your inner experience. Of course the reminder for Justice is that life is not always black and white, but do yourself the service of being present where you are. Be honest. There is a relaxation in your present moment experience that comes with the realness of your transparency. You will feel it immediately as soon as this “confession” takes place. Remember, you are a multidimensional being that is also laughing hysterically on another plane as you stumble and fall. Don’t forget to throw your hands up and fucking laugh! Remember the only thing you can admit is the truth….and its going to emerge anyways, so now is the time.
Justice will arise. Whatever is unfolding, however challenging it may be, it is stretching you. Allow yourself to be a little uncomfortable because you are growing.
Nine cups are drawn in the shape of a lucky horse shoe with a crescent moon at the top of the card. The moon is depicts the listening to subtle guidance within that has moved one in a way that feels gratitude and contentment for what is. The hues of blue and purple in the background are soothing colors that reflects a being of equanimity and deep rest within. This is a time where one is enjoying the pleasures of life, but not taking life for granted and appreciating deeply what is present. Nine of Cups can feel a bit day dreamy as the cups float against the smooth horizon. The invitation is to allow the daydreaming to be, as this is your inspiration and creativity. However, allow daydreaming and action to merge towards those visions. This will allow dreams to fully take form. There is deep joy in all areas of ones experience now and whatever way you move will be from a place of love, not fear or doubt. This will create tremendous beauty in your wake.
Cups represent the emotional state of being, relationships, self expression, creativity, and moving from the heart. At this time one is overflowing in all areas of life and love is pouring through to all relationships and creations. As you feel the abundance in all aspects of life, worry and fear has left your experience. It simply isn’t there, life is moving you in a way that is most natural to your being. The power of presence is felt instead of the mind ruling your action. Nine of Cups is a natural balance with all of nature where one is not feeling as an outsider in life, but connected to the whole of creation. The magic of what is felt has already flooded through the bloodstream and there is no going back to old ways of being. Like a snake, many skins have been shed and the way in which you feel life is without tension. This moves you to create, play, work, and communicate in ways that are open and fresh. Manipulation, grasping, and wanting life to be different is gone and one is seeing the immensity of beauty that is always here.
Nine of Cups is a card of gratitude. The more gratitude that is felt the less we feel we need to have more. We really begin to experience the fullness of our life emanating from the inside instead of trying to collect things, people, or experience to fulfill inner discontent. Nine of Cups is full of overflowing abundance, this does not necessarily mean one is wealthy in terms of monetary gains. One is fulfilled of the riches of simply being alive. This vibration alone turns everything in gold. All that you place your energy towards come from this clear channel. You are creating beauty, experiencing love, joy, relationships are flourishing, and others you come into contact with are inspired and fulfilling meetings. Any goal you have now will do well if you remain investing your energy in the direction you wish. The Nine of Cups is a time of enjoying beauty in mother earth and your self, delighting in your senses, art, love making, and all that connects you to life. This automatically inspires every movement, all creation, work, and all things birthed from you now.
Something to think about in relishing in life is that the ebb and flow is always changing. Now may be all about the pleasures of life and enjoying, but the invitation here is to keep one foot on the ground as you enjoy and to not over indulge in what may “feel good.” The invitation is to be in deep gratitude for what is. When this vibration is present overindulgence will not be an issue and one can fully enjoy the present. Nine of Cups is the wish card of the deck. Not that something will fall out of thin air into your lap, but where your energy is invested will come into full physical being at this time.
Ten of Wands is almost completely dark with hardly any light shining through. Where once there was momentum moving forward with a goal, this is a time where one has really slowed down and starting to feel the burden of their own creation. This is right about the time where pushing through is most necessary. At one time of immaturity it would have been easy to give up at this point. One is now feeling the slowing down in movement and feeling the burden, but not convinced enough to stop the process of creation. There has been a lot of high energy, enthusiasm, and vibrant activity that has is now burning out and losing zest. This can be looked at as a death of the original idea or plan, or it can be seen as a positive relief. When one begins to work from a neutral space rather than one of high energy that easily dissipates, there is more room created for a long term vision to come into being. Rather than worried about lack of enthusiasm that was once present, one can be more excited that this initial phase of short winded enthusiasm has fizzled out so one can work and move on their dream from a sustainable space within instead of a space that is high energy one moment and low the other. The invitation from the Ten of Wands is to not give in to weariness now. Know that you can continue toward your vision from an equanimous space that is connected to your source energy rather than fleeting feelings. Although the high vibe excited energy can feel as though it can take on anything, it is not the short bursts of energy that sustain a vision or goal over an extended period of time. It is the initial spark of an idea that contains this excitement, but what will actually sustain this over a long period of time while one is working each day toward the vision?
Whether one realizes it or not you are actually in the completion stages of your goal. There has been a lot of preparing, building, energy, which has already been invested into the direction you are moving. Now is not the time to say Fuck It and throw everything away. Know that you are well underway to completing what you have started, but one must take a rest and continue one step at a time. Whatever is the most important aspect of your vision, put the sweet nectar of your energy there first. Everything else that you must do or think you must do is not as important as the main aspect of your vision you wish to see take form. If all the less potent areas of your goal are prioritized first, this will slow down your momentum and take up too much of your time. The invitation is to set some wands down and focus on one or two that you will put your attention to each day. What is of lesser importance can be completed in their own natural time. It is easy to burn out when we try to do it all in one day. The invitation is to move at your own pace, but put your sweet attention on what is of highest importance first. As you reclaim your energy out of all the little tasks that are not of high importance, you will bring to life your original energy of the brilliant vision to begin with.
Ten of Wands is a time where the feeling of quitting may be present, but a lot of this energy is due to putting small tasks ahead of the main goal and also, not playing enough. When we allow spontaneity to move us and we relax instead of putting so much pressure on ourselves we find a flow that is easy to live everyday instead of anything close to mundane and heavy. Although you have so much you want to accomplish, it is as equally important to live while working on visions and goals and not get pulled into tunnel vision. Unless of course the tunnel vision feels in the flow and is not draining on the spirit:) The more we are truly living from a space of love and spontaneity we move in a way that is light and free instead of tight and rigid. When one is tight and rigid, how will the vision or goal turn out with that energy? What energy is being invested into this space of creation? Life and play don’t have to be separate from visions and goals. There is infinite inspiration all around when we are open to life and this can be equally as valuable to a project as working on the project itself. Inspiration comes from spaces that are unexpected and we may find that as we allow ourselves to play and move we ignite a creative fire that adds more to our visions and dreams than we can possibly imagine. Living an inspired life and being inspired by anything and everything will add tremendous value to what wishes to manifest through your unique being. Do not be so quick to undervalue the power of play.
As we look at the night sky we are filled with wonder and the mysteries of life. This feeling naturally awakens our cells to the infinite possibilities of what we can discover and create in this life. If life birthed us and the stars into being, what beauty can be created by our hands? The night sky inspires excitement about our unlimited potential of creation. That which inspires your being to move is the same spark that ignited all of life, the stars, and galaxies to be as they are. The Star is a card that one is connected to and honoring their true self and hearts path. This is the one that is moving in a natural way that is in accordance with the divine. What is mundane, what is the road most travelled, is not attractive to the one who pulls The Star. The wisdom of the stars and the galaxies are ancient. This is the same wisdom which is moving through all beings in this very moment. At this time you will find that those who oppose your way are much less impactful for you now. In fact any opposing forces remind you that you are living in honor with your souls path, the immensity of blessings are with you.
There have been many challenges before this card to be pulled in the present position. All of the challenges one has faced until now have created a strength that is unmatched by what one can learn in a book or through another beings story. Your experience is first hand lived by you and these lessons have made you strong. There is immense gratitude and understanding for all that has been experienced and not experienced on your journey. At this time all challenges, blessings, and every experience you have lived thus far will be moving through your spirit as work that will come into the world. Ideas, plans, projects, work, or whatever the focus is at this time will be powerful. You are open to share your essence with those that come into your field while you continue your creative journey. In the past as you were going through challenges more doubt were present about which way to go, what to do, how to be. Now things are flowing in an easy way and there is a natural progression unfolding. The movement of your life is beyond trust, hope, and faith. The Star moves in complete alignment with all of life.
There are significant changes happening which are opening you in a way that seemed possible before, but out of reach. Now these changes within your mind, body, spirit, inner/outer experience are fully embodying what you have always intuitively deeply known, but still felt separate from. This is why all can flow with great ease at this time. All doors are wide open now and your intuition can feel where to go and not to go much more swiftly and with less discord than before. The Star comes after stages of limbo, uncertainty, and challenges with a light that breaks through all ancient heaviness that was once held onto.
You are dancing in your brilliance.
We are ancient souls. As the trees have deep root systems in the earth and branches which touch the heavens, we are the same in this way. The height and depth of our being expand toward the sky and extend into the earth below. As we move through this life we are discovering unexplainable beauty we are blessed to experience. The trees roots represent ancient wisdom through our experiences, through our ancestors, and through collective consciousness. All that we have lived and witnessed is in our bloodstream creating our unique pattern. Our eyes can continue to open to subtler and subtler realms, or we can go to sleep and close our eyes when challenges arise. The power is always with us to open to life instead of close. The invitation is to open your sensitivity, be vigilant, and to not fall asleep after harsh experiences. We are invited by life to allow all that needs to arise within our experience and grow deeper roots as we travel all realms. All that we have lived does not need to make us shrivel away and die while we are alive. We are meant to be shaken up to the immense beauty and magic that is present. The divine perfection that is ever permeating this fabric of existence.
Each being we meet has a root system with a different story, unique life movements, joyful times, extreme hardship, and everything in between. We cannot always know or see the root system of each individual. We can meet them with an empty mind, with no concepts or ideas about who we think they are. When we meet other beings with no mind, all judgement vanishes. This leaves room for immense healing and discovery to take place within each being. Our root systems may all have different stories, but when we meet as love we have space for all stories to be held in the vastness of our being. If one can meet another in this way, it is recognized within the capacity to hold space for yourself as you are. There is tremendous power in this acceptance for all as it is. It is where the magic of life is felt.
Our roots deeply grow into the earth. There is a connectedness to all of life that is felt within the ones being now more potently then ever before. All experiences from past have merged with your present and future to allow your being to flow with great ease. Where once your root system was shallow and weak, one is now absorbed in the ancient wisdom of spirits grace. As deep reflection of life moves the unfolding of your story, you are able to travel to new heights as lessons are learned from old stories. These lessons have a way of being learned overtime when we are ready and available to see. The ancient wisdom of our being has the capacity to be deeply rooted in the earth and high in the sky simultaneously. We are able to be here on the planet and simultaneously travel all realms of spirit. We do this when we are aware of it or not. A simple way of seeing our travel is through dreamtime. We discover in dream as we do in our waking state. As our roots run deep we open ourselves to learning from all and not limiting ourselves to one way of thinking or being. Life will continue to remove blind folders as we move from our ancient and sacred wisdom. This space defies all boundaries and definitions.
Son of Swords has tremendous focus and determination for what he desires to see manifest in his life. Some will view him as obsessed or overly ambitious. Son of Swords sees his movements as a fulfilling way to see something through to completion. He is flying on his sword fiercely, with intense power in one direction and one direction only. He is not on the fence about his quest, but completely throwing himself in without fear. He sees only plan A, no plan B. There are those in his life who will disagree with this seemingly narrow way of moving, but this compulsion to move so confidently in one direction he cannot deny. This is the temperament of his being and he’s riding the wave. Those who wish to agree or disagree may do so freely, he will continue on his journey with high momentum and not lose sleep over opinions.
There are risks and challenges which will show up and confront him along his journey. The Son of Swords seems to disregard all of these future possibilities of failure. His attitude is “I will cross that bridge when it comes.” He does not see dangerous territory he only sees the way he needs to move in his freedom, he is not fearful of may or may not come. There is a pure creative force driving the Son of Swords. He surrenders to the force which is moving him in galaxy strides throughout the cosmos. Where once there was so much resistance within him, now he has surrendered to this grace which has always been guiding him.
Wherever the focus of attention the Son of Swords has put his being towards, there will be great success. There will also be intense learning experiences that are highly challenging because of the nature of his bold movements. In one way it speeds up his learning because of constant challenges that arise which stretch his being. His nature to never play it safe or remain comfortable is always expanding his being. Although his attitude is strong and swift towards his goal, he must be cautious of not rushing. He can still move fiercely with determined and excited power, but he must be aware of the quality of his flight. It is wise for him to be in alignment with each step toward his goal. Not to be so fixed on the end goal but to see each moment as the end goal while he moves toward the bigger picture. The Son of Swords will be misunderstood by those close to him, but the force which moves him is one he trusts greater than the opinions of others. The invitation is to allow the momentum to naturally propel one into the direction you are presently moving. Stay mindful of trying to get anywhere other than where you are, allow your vision to be present and not one which may bind your spirit in time. All tools, resources, and experience are here with you now. When we move with love this will be reflected in the goal. If “the end” is more important than now this will be detrimental to this incredible sharp and present focus of the Son Swords. Fully be in each moment and allow your creativity to seep out of your pores like magic. As you move in this way you will not be fueling your goal with a nervous energy but one that is full, whole, and complete. Your momentum is strong now. Allow it to flow, but do not race or force it. Fully embrace the natural flow that is already moving you.
Three of Pentacles speaks to a vision or goal that will come to full completion. The inspiration, excitement, drive, and commitment are all forces within the Three of Pentacles that are supporting the totality of this creative goal or business venture. All skills you have are unique to your vision and merged with a creative mind, whatever goal is being focused on cannot be recreated by another. This creative juice can only flow from you in the unique way it shows up, therefore there is no competition. The work you are focused on is deeply rewarding and you are committed to see the project through. You are working in a way that you are satisfied with the process of your creation. The invitation is to have an absolute yes as you make decisions along the way. If something feels “off” as you create, it’s important to renavigate and do something differently. You want to feel a Fuck Yes as you move and grove. The happier and connected you feel with your work, the more inspiration flows effortlessly. Cutting corners, rushing, or trying to complete your goal quickly will only slow you down. Cutting corners will be felt by you and cannot be satisfying. Sometimes slow and steady can be highly effective and efficient. Finish the day completely satisfied with what you create. All or nothing baby!
Doubt is your worst companion right now. Where as there are times in our lives we need to doubt and question what we are doing, right now is the time to fully step into creation and blaze the fucking trail. No backing down. Your full heart is present and joyful in this work. If there are any doubts or opposing forces at play, turn that energy around into a creative drive that sees opportunity at a sign of doubt. If there is anyone in your life who doubts or questions what you are doing, that is okay! Let them! Everyone is entitled to their freedom of speech. Others can doubt what you are doing and completely disagree. Use that as a reminder that you love what you do. Remember, not everyone will understand you and there is no need to explain yourself either. Others doubt can only effect you when you are doubting yourself. Allow others to speak and express, but stay strong in your hearts journey. Three of Pentacles says let doubt fall away and stay true to your goal and vision. Be attentive to not get so caught up in the end goal that you aren’t enjoying present moment experience. Allow your goal or vision to be the full embodiment of how you live your life moment to moment.
Three of Pentacles depicts a mountain with three peaks. Underneath the mountain are three pentacles mirroring the shape of the mountain peaks. As above so Below. What is inside you is being birthed into the world. Your beauty cannot be hidden and it is bursting out. What is contained within you cannot help but manifest itself into the physical world. It is the One dancing seemingly inside and outside. Any fears you allow to grow inside will effect your vision, it will create a fog over the beauty of your goal. Three of Pentacles encourages you to not fear success or failure, simply keep following your natural intuition and guidance. Your clear vision, energy investment, and daily momentum towards your goal will allow this to come to full fruition. Do not be afraid to ask other peoples opinion or input on what you are doing, especially if they have any experience that could give you a alternative point of view. Always welcome the positive and creative input from others to assist in the expansion of your creations. Planning for your vision into smaller goals each day can help you complete the project as a whole. No need to obsessively plan or dictate each small step of creation. Think in terms of what sounds fun for you to do everyday. When you take that attitude into the project, stress of completing the whole project will fall away. You will be able to remain in presence and forget about “when it should be completed” As long as you are enjoying the process and putting your love in the direction your heart flows, you will be met with the same in return. Enjoy the process and keep creating.
Five of Swords represents self destruction. A worm or parasite has been cut in half. The “ugly” has come to the surface and self-destructive patterns are coming out of hiding. Patterns are being noticed and looked at more closely than ever before. Where once things could have been set aside or taken lightly, one is now feeling the heaviness of their own self imposed limitations. Although this seems to be a card one wishes to flip over and redraw…it is the perfect opportunity to look at any patterns that are arising and break the ongoing cycle. Reoccurring events that happen in ones life which drain power are dropping hints to navigate in a different way. This could be honest communication with self/others, a carelessness that is effecting you and “other” beings in your life. This can be a number of things which one is acting upon that is not alignment with your integrity. This can arise as something small that grows into a mighty parasite that feeds off you. Five of Swords has been cut, which means whatever this is which is draining energy, it has been exposed. This dark aspect is now out in the open and you are witnessing and acknowledging it instead of ignoring. So although a morbid card the upside is one is actually seeing what has been leaking out energy.
Five of Swords invitation is to identify where this energetic leak seems to be happening and to address it. There are some things by themselves that seem to drop away effortlessly. However, whatever is present now is asking for acknowledgement. This gentle way of seeing and holding space for this to arise will allow it to be released. Some patterns are deeply rooted within us, but we can choose to stop identifying with them and release our grip of identity. You are vast and limitless being, never bound by anything in particular. We alone hold ourself hostage by repeating patterns that no longer serve us. As we inquire into our patterns we can see easily how they are fueling our identification to a certain state of being. We are allowed to give up old stories to allow what is true in the present moment to shine through. We weaken and age ourself on many levels by hanging on to old broken stories about our idea of who we are. Sometimes we do this because we are afraid of the immensity our own freedom. It can be scary at first to feel so open, without identifications to people, stories, wounds, events, etc. On the other side of our self destructive tendencies there is infinite space and possibility, all the magic is present. So whatever pattern is being witnessed now is being seen as it is being kicked out the door. Grace is moving all.
Five of Swords represents defeat. The kind of defeat that must be acknowledged and through this defeat one will rise again stronger than ever. Defeat sounds depressing, but in fact this is exactly what is needed to happen for you to realign with natures harmonic rhythm. There is nothing lost here, only lessons that have been learned. Through ones own experiences and defeats we listen more intuitively in ways we wish to move. We start developing a deeper trust with ourself and our voice. We see we cannot ignore what is felt inside and we align again with our natural movement.
The Empress is the earth mother. She is the feminine that nurtures all of life. She is the beauty seen in nature, art that moves you, music which ignites the fire within. She is fertile with child, and she is birthing creativity and expression. She rules the planet venus and pure evidence that Grace exists. The Empress is the reminder of deep nurturing, love, and growth in the masculine and the feminine presence. The Empress card depicts a white tree glowing in the moonlight with a pink and purple energy emitting from the magic within. A crescent moon shines above, the moon is all that is woman. She represents women from all stages of life, reminding us of the soft yet powerful light the feminine carries. There is something in this feminine presence that seems to remove all doubt, fear, lack, and frustration from ones path. This card can either represent yourself, someone else in your life, or attributes that are reminding you to nurture, love, and care for all you create. Allow anything that is impeding you to be seen as a small bump in the road, or nothing at all. The more we allow this feminine presence to naturally bloom and flourish, we are easily guided on our path. Seeing how all is interconnected, one is never somewhere in life conflicting ones path. The Empress reminds us all stages, phases, growth, death and rebirth unfolding and will continue to cycle naturally.
The Empress is for man or woman nurturing their creative gifts and abilities, giving the full attention and watching them transform quickly and grow beyond anything imaginable. The Empress encourages this creativity to be developed and for all resources to be explored and utilized. The Empress is the divine mother of creation. All that is birthed, is birthed through her. She has no limits to what creations can be brought forth and there is not end to what can be discovered. The Empress takes the creative energy of a child into a mature adult who has experience on this earth. The empress creates from all she has seen and tells stories through her creations. The Empress is not interested in work that is robotic and mundane. She allows life to course through her, spontaneously and alive, fresh in the moment. The Empress ignites a natural life, one that is born from the earth. She is the ancient grandmother tree that contains all wisdom and skill to create what is felt inside. She is the laughter that bursts when we don’t trust our natural process and think in terms of practicality. Her practicality is different from the mainstream world. Her practical nature comes from the knowing that she is one with all of nature, she is nature itself. She knows what comes through her will always be supported by the divine will. As the trees are supported to grow fully and robustly, she too will be supported in all her hearts natural desire to be.
The Empress is grounded in the present plane and simultaneously has access to all other realms. She is traveling in each moment as she is here, she feels/sees how her vibration is traveling through all of time in every moment. The Empress knows that the deep seeds of creation within her have been nurtured deeply. Not only by her own energy on this plane, but the infinite vibration of her expression that travels throughout and beyond time. This immense creative energy cannot fail as it moves, it is the most natural and simple when we allow it to be whatever it wants to be. Is it even up to us? Can a musician not play music? Do they even have a choice? Maybe….but perhaps, food for thought. How can we deny our most intimate natural expression? Does this occur because we feel different or strange, maybe afraid of what others think? All of those are absurd illusions we buy into when we want to believe in our separation from life. This is an intimate part of all of our process. We can try and practically find ways to maneuver out of our naturalness to fit in with a mainstream system. We are free to do so. However, The Empress is the embodiment of full allowance for gifts and magic to flow through her veins. She does not hide who she is. Like the flower that blooms without thinking, this is The Empress. Her natural evolution to embody all of creation without a thought. It simply, must arise from her being.
The Empress is the mother of the moon. She opens for you if you share your presence with her. She drinks you inside until you completely merge with her. Her femininity wraps you in her velvet cloak and embraces you and encourages you to deeply follow the secret longings of your heart. She comes to you in the night with a spark of an idea, a fire felt inside, music to be played, places for you to discover within and without. She is the birth of all of life and reminds you of the miraculous nature you are. Anything you wish to create she shows is possible. She encourages one to witness the power of attention put into any creation and the fruits of the work one will discover. This springs from an idea, but can also die as an idea. Only with energy put into action will this birth take the embodiment of life.
Six of Pentacles depicts a pure white branch bearing six fire pentacles. After the darkness of five of pentacles, one is now experiencing an opening within that is flourishing on material aspects of life. This is expanding from a rootedness coming out of an inner nourishing. This is a time where one is fruitful and prosperous financially, or perhaps inner resources are being discovered which can be exchanged for financial independence. Whether the abundance is present now or you are discovering and working toward financial freedom, you currently have all resources you need. This is a time where one does not need reassurance on the path you are on and all the dots are connecting.
Six of Pentacles is a great reflection that we all have unique gifts that can be exchanged for financial independence. When we see we already have all we need we find the love of joyous work instead of resorting to the mundane work which leaks our spirit. This is a time when ones gifts are being used fully or being discovered to allow financial exchange to happen. For the one who is unsure, What resources do you have that others do not? What ways would you enjoy giving that allows you to receive financial exchange? The more we discover ourselves and what we are attracted to, we can genuinely trust our unique ways to give and receive. Frustration seeps in when we do not trust our own process and start doubting our natural progression. As sweet energy is put into your work you will be met in return with the same energy. If you are halfway in then you will only see some of the results. Six of Pentacles says do not be afraid to jump fully into what you are doing. Ask for in exchange the value that you put into your work, don’t sell yourself short. Your time, skills, resources, and talents are of high value and they will continue to bloom as much as you put your entire being into them.
Six of Pentacles is about giving and receiving. If you find you are giving so much in your work and not receiving what you need to be abundant and prosperous the invitation is to sincerely ask, has this work just become humdrum autopilot work? Or, is my being still present here? Sometimes we are not receiving what we are putting in because perhaps our line of work or creation is shifting or changing into something entirely new. When we pay attention we can see if we are feeling drained or uninspired. This can happen because what we are doing is not aligned with our true internal calling. When everything seems to be going shit it often means there is some hidden treasure waiting to be recognized. We are always allowed to change direction to do something that satisfies us deeply and this can happen at anytime in our life or many times! We are not only here to play when we retire! Who said we will even make it to retirement?! The invitation is to allow the true blooming of what inspires to become the work. Many are shifting out of the 9-5 paradigm to discover what truly sets their heart on fire. Not to say it is easy, but it doesn’t need to be. There will always be struggles that stretch us in ways we can simply say thank you for. What is more important than what is easy is what is actually satisfying in a real way? Is where you spend the majority of time each day worth the energy invested? Failing a million times at something that makes you excited to be alive is much more satisfying than playing it safe with a steady job while dying on the inside…..unless that seems cool with you…
Six of Pentacles recognizes your internal blooming whether you do or not. You absolutely have all the resources you need. It is only the fear we allow to creep in which delays our blooming. But this delay is also crucial because life is testing your own trust. Each day you work on what you love you will grow in trust. You will also get pissed off and want to give up, this is part of the dance. There is no need to let one moment, one day, or even a few months of darkness or doubt stop you from aligning with what work is true to you. As your relationship with yourself is no longer separated within, you will continue what you do in an effortless way. The blooming within you has been blooming since before birth and it will continue to bloom fully. It will also wither away and die off, decompose, and begin itself anew. This is part of our dying and rebirthing that is our natural expansion. The natural essence of our being must go through the wide spectrum of light, dark, and grey to encompass the totality. It is already happening…best if we get out the way and let it do what it does.
Against a black background a red, wilted rose sheds one petal from her bloom. At the top of the card there is half a moon shining with a string of pentacles in between the light and dark of the card. There is sadness and loss present, from spiritual to material. This is a time where a feeling of aloneness is present, but not the kind of aloneness which is strong and fulfilled on its own. This is an overwhelming feeling of lack within and without and a time where it feels like there is no energy to move forward.
We are all bound to go through these kinds of major deaths in our life. Where it can truly feel like one is dying. Often, and of course not all the time, there are many little things that if not expressed correctly remain within ones being and at a certain point must come to the surface. This is a time where one is depleted in their energy because of not taking full responsibility for themselves. Although not always easy to hear, one can only come to a place of loss and defeat when they have given up their internal power to external sources for means of joy. Whatever chaos is being experienced now, if within ones self, a relationship, family, work, creativity….this period is for now only. There is a reason for it, for one to wake up more fully to their own internal power and to no longer seek this from any external source. It is a hard lesson to receive, but a blessing for one to get real and honest.
It is time to open ones eyes. To not walk around blindfolded and to really see what is going on within ones experience. Everything is reflecting where one is seeing lack within themselves, therefore it is being experienced within ones life. What is it that feels like its missing, that is not already present now? Whatever that is, look at it more closely and see if you are in fact holding this back from yourself. Can the people around you, your work, any situation that is being experienced truly hold you back from being you? It can be easy to blame even if another has caused hurt, but why is this being reflected anyway? Why is this showing up in the present moment experience? There is something present that is here that points back to you and you alone. Nothing can shift your present moment naturalness of being you unless you give up your own authority and leak your own power. It is a tender time and that is okay, we all experience death and it is crucial we experience a death of our illusions. Know your power will be uncovered again and you will come out even stronger and with greater depth. Allow your self to fully be with yourself right now, to listen to your own voice before drinking in what other have to say. Allow this aspect of you that wants to die to die, and continue to bloom again.
